More on factorial in Python

More stuff over at tiddly-pom on the whole 10,000 factorial thing. Julian does a good job of pointing at me and laughing (rightly so, rightly so), and there are a couple of imperative approaches to the problem suggested, including one using generators – yay.

Of course, something I forgot to point out about Stephen’s reduce based solution is that it’s a functional approach, and so has more in common with what’s happening in the Haskell version than these imperative versions. Anyway.
